Alter Bridge is teaming up with Z2 Comics this summer to present the graphic novel “Alter Bridge: Tour of Horrors.” In the tradition of comic horror anthologies like “Tales from the Crypt”, “Creepy” and “Vault of Horror,” Marvel Comics writer Emily Ryan Lerner and a cast of top artists take fans on a ride of thrills and chills.
To celebrate its comics debut, Alter Bridge will release a first-ever vinyl edition of its 2004 debut album, “One Day Remains,” available only with the deluxe graphic novel package, exclusively through the Z2 website, and available for pre-order now.
“After 17 years making music and touring the world, there aren’t many opportunities for a rock band to do something they’ve never done before,” the band said. “After partnering with Josh and the whole Z2 staff to create ‘Alter Bridge: Tour of Horrors,’ we can now check create a horror comic off our bucket list. We can’t wait for people to read this original story we came up with. It is equally exciting we are finally getting to release ‘One Day Remains’ on vinyl thanks to this incredible partnership.”
Publisher Josh Frankel said: “‘Alter Bridge: Tour of Horrors’ is another testament to our commitment to the vision of the artist. While some of our releases are directly tied to the storylines of the albums themselves, our mission is simply to provide a home for these musicians to expose their fans to a whole new side of their artistic palette, uninhibited by their previous musical work or otherwise. This book is guaranteed to please both fans of the classic horror anthology and Alter Bridge fans seeking something new.”
“Alter Bridge: Tour of Horrors” comes in at 120 pages and will be released in a standard hardcover edition in comic shops and bookstores in November 2021, as well as special deluxe, super deluxe edition and super-duper deluxe editions available for pre-order only through the Z2 website, which will include the exclusive vinyl edition of “One Day Remains” in a strictly limited edition of 3,000 copies across three premium edition.
